World ranked IBF #11 bantamweight Thanthong Kiattaweesuk (20-0, 14 KOs) scored a fourth round knockout over Lande Olin (5-3) of Indonesia to retain IBF Pan Pacific title at the Mahare Corporation in Bangkok, Thailand on Friday. Kiattaweesuk dominated his opponent as he delivered accurate combinations from the southpaw stance. Olin was dropped in round two and again in round four and referee Kringsak Kronghong counted the import out at 0.46 of the round. Promoter Jimmy Chaichotchuang said, “Kiattaweesuk showed his world class skills again in winning in impressive style today.” Chaichotchuang continued, “I am sure Kiattaweesuk can mix it with the best bantamweights in the world including IBF champion Johnny Perez, Vic Darchinyan and Joseph Agbeko. He only needs the opportunity.” For more details and photos click here…

Mitrione looking for hat trick

UFC 119 is LIVE on PPV Sept. 25!

Matt Mitrione doesn’t mind being the underdog.

He gladly accepted the role when he defeated cast mate Scott Junk on the tenth season of The Ultimate Fighter.  He did it again in December 2009, when he KOed heavy favorite and fellow NFL alum Marcus Jones at the series’ live finale.  And then he played the part a third time when he unexpectedly dominated internet phenom-turned-legit fighter Kimbo Slice at UFC 113 . . .

Frenkel, Murat ready to shine

Photo by Team Sauerland

Unbeaten cruiserweight Alexander Frenkel (22-0, 17 KOs) faced off with European champion Enzo Maccarinelli and unbeaten light heavyweight Karo Murat (22-0, 13 KOs) toed the line with Nathan Cleverly in advance of their WBO Eliminator at the press conference in advance of Saturday’s Magnificent Seven show at the LG Arena in Birmingham. “Alexander and Karo have got what it takes to be successful in the lion’s den on Saturday night,” Hall-of-Fame-Promoter Wilfried Sauerland said. “It will not be easy but I am confident they will leave the ring victorious.

“Maccarinelli is a former world champion and a good puncher, but he has a rather weak chin. Knowing Alexander´s power and his boxing skills, I think he will stop Maccarinelli after seven or eight rounds. Cleverly is a good young man with a good record but Karo has fought much tougher opponents than he has. Karo is more experienced and that will make the difference on Saturday night. I expect Karo to clinch a points victory.” (more…)
